When you’re married to anyone suffering from addiction, the struggle to get them healthy and well seems never-ending. They can be steadfast in that, “this, that, and the third” have to line up before they are willing to get help. If they acknowledge that there is even an issue.  The problem is that often, those list items rarely line up and they never get help. Families fall apart and lives are changed. The Marchman Act may be the best option for you.

What Is The Marchman Act?

The Hal S. Marchman Alcohol and Other Drug Services Act of 1993 (aka The Marchman Act) is a Florida Law that affords both voluntary and involuntary assessments and treatment of an individual who is suspected or alleged to suffer from alcohol or drug abuse. Also known as The Marchman Act for short.

But don’t give up. You and your family may benefit from speaking with Michael Rabideau about how The Marchman Act can help you and begin the process of filing a Marchman Act Petition.
